Code: Select all

set "file=DRIVELETTER:\path\to\your\file\FILENAME.fileXtension"

Re: scheduling a Batch file with parameters using the AT com

The PATH variable expands to 2+ locations on your computer. On mine, it expands to 8 different folders. That's why you're gettint such an error message.
Besides, if any part of your desired path contains spaces, then you need to enclose it all in "quotes".

What is your required (full) path?

I know it's none of my business, but why exactly do you want to kill explorer.exe?

Code: Select all

The /a-d switch will show you everything in the directory but the directories themselves.
And the /y switch stands for yes; it will suppress any "overwrite file?" prompt.
